Editors note MikaTheGoofball

Welcome to issue 141 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

September is approaching rather rapidly and August is coming to a close. However, before we wave goodbye there is this issue of the Bootleggers Buzz for you, the last one for August 2009. Rest assured though, we will still be there in September and in the many more months to come. I seem to be getting ahead of myself so let me slow down and focus on the task at hand, finishing this Editors Note and get on with what happened this week. Alright! Let's give it a go.

Before I start with the introduction of the subjects that are in this Buzz I would like to announce that the events regarding The Deadly Alliance has been noted, however seeing they happened late this Sunday we were unable to cover them just yet. The article about The Deadly Alliance is not entirely accurate anymore, nevertheless I hope you will still enjoy it. An update on what exactly happened will of course be in the next issue.

Aldarion and me were pretty lonely on the Buzz Forum again this week. With other writers still bothered by real life and connection issues most articles in this Buzz come from our pen once again. We did our best to cover everything that happened and hope we did a good job at it. Despite having problems, Sean did manage to get in his Crew of the Week as we noticed many people missed this, and Frick was able to supply us with an interview with Altrozero, the creator of the help site with the same name, known to most as

As for the recent events, I seem to keep sidetracking, do I not? Anyway. As said before, The Deadly Alliance returned, although the crew is no longer at the statistics at the moment. Furthermore we witnessed the annihilation of The Burning Legion and the takeover of the Blood Line Killahz, courtesy of the same players that were responsible for the wipe. Crews seem to be center stage for most of the violence, and they still are in this issue. Crew wipes, no matter how sad, are always appreciated by us, so please, on behalf of the entire team, buy those bullets and use those guns!

As always we have our weekly segments ready for you. The earlier mentioned 'Crew of the Week' is in this issue, as well as 'A Year Back. Of course we also have 'The Weekly Flash' and the 'Bootleggers Game Statistics'. These two segments have received a physical overhaul, courtesy of our head writer Aldarion,and are now more similar to the general Buzz layout. Contrary to previous times we left the Obituaries out of the Game Statistics, please let us know how you think about this as we feel that players can now easily trace when players got killed by checking the 'killed' date on the profile of a dead player. Nevertheless we value the opinion of our players, so please let us know either by replying in the Buzz Game Forum thread or by commenting to the article. Your feedback is much appreciated.

As always we are looking for writers to come and reinforce our team. If you feel you have got what it takes to become a Buzz Writer then please submit an application article about a recent, Bootleggers related subject and you might be finding yourself being offered the digital pen of the Bootleggers Buzz writer. It may take a while before we reply to your application, but rest assured, we will reply.

For now I am out of subjects to cover. I thank you for reading our articles every week, this week included, and hope that you will continue to like the work we as Buzz Team try to bring you every Sunday. I hope to see you again next week. For now, take care and stay safe!

The Burning Legion Wiped. EmmAldarion

TDA Gives It Another Go MikaTheGoofball

Being the victim of an insider the previous time has not stopped The Deadly Alliance from wanting to settle on the statistics page. A couple of weeks after having been attacked and removed by The Syndicate we witness another return of the crew with its traditional dark blue color. Seeing a chance after the Blood Line Killahz had lost its spot, TDA crewboss Breeze was successful in buying the spot from Barchelli for 400 points.

Made Men Returns EmmAldarion

This week, we witnessed the return of Made Men. The crew spent three-hundred points to buy the spot previously owned by Novus Ordo Seclorum. Having a spot on the statistics is not unfamiliar for this crew, as Made Men was on the stats, two times before. However, last time it only managed to survive for a short amount of time. The Bootleggers Buzz had a little chat with one of the bosses of the crew, oInSaNeGaMeRoV2.
